Dr. Marsha Black inducted into new class of UGA Teaching Academy

EHS faculty member Dr. Marsha Black was one of eight UGA faculty members inducted into the newest class of the university’s Teaching Academy on Nov. 5, 2013.

Founded in 1999, the Teaching Academy is a “faculty-initiated and faculty-driven organization” dedicated to the notion that “teaching is important,” said Josef M. Broder, a founding member of the organization.¬†The associate dean for academic affairs in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Broder also is chair of the academy.

The Teaching Academy annually invites faculty to join the organization based on their commitment to instruction. Among other events, the group facilitates the Teaching Academy Fellows program, which connects early-career faculty with veteran mentors.

Broder said the Teaching Academy’s biggest goals are to recognize and celebrate excellence in teaching.

“Members of the Teaching Academy are ambassadors who carry out their good work to promote a culture of good teaching,” he said.
